NEW YORK - From his small studio in New York state, John Iversen meticulously fabricates organically inspired, wearable art. Crafted to perfection, his inspiration not only comes from specimens of the natural world, but also in the metals he uses. Each vein in his hydrangeas is finely worked; the edges of his distinctive leaf pins ripple as though they are actually dried; his chain links are subtly textured to reveal the quality of the silver.
"All of my jewelry is about the secret which lies hidden in the materials I use. It wants to be discovered."
